Now this one’s a first. In the history of Indian cinema, a diction expert has never found his name in the credit list of a film. But for Ghanchakkar, Vidya Balan made sure Sumit Bhateja, who also wrote Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, got his due.
After all, it was he who helped the actress with her diction for her upcoming role of a Punjabi housewife in Rajkumar Gupta’s next.
Our source says, “Vidya was keen that credit be given to Sumit, as she was extremely happy with his work. She feels the diction has gone a long way in making her character look convincing. When she learnt that diction experts are officially not credited for their work, she insisted otherwise.”
Says Gupta, “Sumit has done a fantastic job and he will be getting end credit mention as Vidya’s diction teacher.”
